Description

Overview:  

Moving from a Traditional IT department to a Service-oriented IT department requires a paradigm shift. It means evolving beyond an outdated management style to embrace a new and innovative approach. Technology has advanced remarkably in the past few years; it is time that IT management to rethink its role within the business. This involves creating financial transparency and aligning IT spend and budgets to business goals and outcomes. 

Why should you attend :  

Information Technology costs are often seen as a huge black hole that has no bottom. The CEO and CFO are always wondering how all the money is being spent and exactly how IT is serving the business. The CIO finds it difficult to explain his or her decisions because of a lack of hard financial numbers and resorts to using vague generalities or, even worse, highly technical terms to defend his actions. If you can identify with this scenario, then you might be managing an IT department using the outdated and obsolete Traditional IT Management process.

Areas Covered in the Session:  
  • The pitfalls of Traditional IT management approach
  • The advantages of a Service-centric management approach
  • How financial transparency supports a Service-centric approach
  • Discussion of elements of financial transparency for IT departments
  • Creation of transform plan from Traditional to Service-centric

 

Who Will Benefit:  
  • CIOs in Small to Midsize Enterprises
  • VP IT in Small to Midsize Enterprises
  • IT Directors in Small to Midsize Enterprises

Overview:  

Moving from a Traditional IT department to a Service-oriented IT department requires a paradigm shift. It means evolving beyond an outdated management style to embrace a new and innovative approach. Technology has advanced remarkably in the past few years; it is time that IT management to rethink its role within the business. This involves creating financial transparency and aligning IT spend and budgets to business goals and outcomes.  When IT is viewed as an asset-centric organization it becomes, by design, a cost center. The IT department's role in this outdated management style can best be described as an overseer, responsible for maintaining the infrastructure and applications. The characteristics of a Traditional IT department are as follows: technology centered, defined by functional and technical silos, insulated from the rest of the organization, and obsessed with costs. These characteristics have been and still are part of many organizations that use the Traditional IT management model.
